Williamsburg High School
We, the class of 1962, fondly dedicate THE TATTLER to
Mrs. Anne Belck, for it is she who has instilled in us a love
of learning, while she has been a remarkable example of
kindness, understanding, and patience. For her gracious and
untiring efforts on our behalf, which have made our class
devoted to her, she will always be remembered.
We, the class of 1962, are happy and sad at the same moment.
Because we will feel more adult and be considered more mature as
high school graduates, we are glad. However, we are sorry that our
four years at Williamsburg High School have so speedily passed.
Our high school years have come to an end so soon because we have
been constantly busy doing schoolwork and having fun with friends.
Now, the time is our own to waste away or to fill with the dignity
of work and its rewards. We will remember, however, that what we
do is not our business alone; it will affect those who love us.
Whether our teachers feel success or failure in their dealings with us
will depend upon what we are in the future. Because we have been
taught well, we have a foundation upon which to build.
As we now know the wealth of what has been taught us, we will try
to give abundantly and cheerfully of our knowledge and wisdom to

HI9T0RY OF THE CLA89
Although it was four years ago, it seems but only yesterday, that forty-one freshmen of the class of
"62" entered into the routine of high school life, feeling both awed and excited. Furing the past four
years we have learned a great variety of things, all of which will be of importance to us in the unknown
future which lies ahead.
The Freshman Reception held in our honor by the seniors will always remain unforgotten. Although
we were made to look ridiculous, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and began looking forward to the
year, when as seniors, we would hold a "Freshman Reception. " As we came to know our fellow class-
mates, we elected the following class officers: Barbara Hinton, president; Andy Burr, vice-president;
Mike Dymerski, secretary; Neal Menard, treasurer; and Joanne Brooks, historian. To the newly formed
Student Council we elected Gail Mougin and Andy Burr. At the conclusion of our freshman year we lost
four of our classmates: Sandra Bond, Linda Elmes, Mary Lou Johndrow, and Jacqueline Tirrell.
Returning the following fall as sophomores we felt much more secure than we had in the previous
year. We gained two new class members, Suzanne Arel and Neal Dewey. Our first order of business was
the election of officers which we did with the following results: Neal Menard, president; Ricky Graves,
vice-president; Jimmy Outhuse, secretary; Gail Mougin, treasurer; and Joanne Brooks, historian. To the
Student Council we elected Andy Burr, Paul Healy, and Cecil Thomas. During the course of the year
we held two dances which greatly helped in increasing our small class treasury. We also sold green and
white pens and donated the profit to the school library.
In September of '60 we returned to high school as upperclassmen. We added one new member to our
class, Kathy Morin. As juniors we felt much more dignified than we had previously, and we chose the
following class officers: Andy Burr, president; Ricky Graves, vice-president; Kathy Morin, secretary;
Gail Mougin, treasurer; and Joanne Brooks, historian. We elected Mike Dymerski, Andy Burr, Paul Healy,
and James Outhuse to the Student Council. We held a Sock Hop this year which was highly successful and
enjoyed by all. The big event of the year, however, was the Junior Prom. Our theme was "Japanese Gar-
dens," and the auditorium was beautifully decorated in Japanese style. We were very proud to have Bon-
nie Albert, a junior, chosen queen, with juniors Peggy Lockwood, Kathy Morin, and Susan Fowler and
senior Linda Beals in her court. Our prom was one of the most successful in many years; a fact of which
we were very proud.
As we entered our senior year our class suffered a rather significant .loss as Bonnie Albert, James Bar-
ms, Neal Dewey, Betty Lou Morrey, Susan Packard. Roy Schoonover, and Richard West left us. However,
we welcomed an old classmate, Richard Graves, back into our midst. Before planning the Freshman Re-
ception we elected the following class officers: Michael Dymerski, president; Kathy Morin, vice-presi-
dent; Gail Mougin, secretary; James Outhuse, treasurer; and Joanne Brooks, historian. Then we elected
Andy Burr, Gail Mougin, Michael Dymerski, Damon Cheverette, and Cecil Thomas to the Student
Council. Because of the large amount of freshmen, we held a "Haze Day" at school at which time we
"hazed" the freshmen. We dressed them in ridiculous costumes, and we all enjoyed ourselves immensely.
Our class would like to take this opportunity to thank the faculty, students, and especially the freshmen
for the cooperation given us. At Christmas we held the customary semi-formal dance which was well
attended and enjoyed by all.
Now as we stand on the threshold of the future we would like to thank the faculty of Burgy High for
the guidance they have given us and the knowledge imparted to us during the past four years.

One by one, the huge powerful engines of the sleek jet began to rev up; in seconds we began to roll;
and in minutes we were in the air, zooming south through the overcast sky. It was June 3, 1983, and I
was on special assignment to Cuba. As I glanced up from the newspaper I was reading, I could hardly
believe my eyes. There was Damon Cheverette, my old classmate, serving drinks to the passengers in
the first class section. Eventually I caught his attention, and we made plans to meet at a popular night-
spot in Havana that evening. He asked me if I had a date. I said no. He told me not to worry, for he
knew every girl in Havana and would get me the best one. Later that evening, when in bed at my hotel
room, I wondered what the worst one looked like.
The plane landed twelve minutes late at Havana Airport. While waiting in line in the terminal for
my bags, I noticed a very sleekly-dressed woman coming toward me. I couldn't believe it- -two surprises
in one day.
"Why, Brenda Donovan, what are you doing here?"
She told me her husband decided to make a career out of the army, and he decided she should live
in Cuba and run a coffee plantation. We had a cup of tea at the airport coffee shop and began reminis-
cing about our old school days.
"By the way, Jimmy, did you know that Kathy Bartlett is living in the Belgian Congo now with her
childhood sweetheart? The two of them own and operate a dance studio, teaching the natives the Mam-
bo, Cha Cha, and Twist. Throughout the small native villages which dot the wild Congo, Kathy is
known as the siren of the surfaces. And remember Barbara Hinton and how she was always disagreeing
with the teachers? Well, two years after graduation, the school committee made her superintendent of
the Williamsburg School System. At present, Barb is holding an iron hand over the faculty."
"Gee, Brenda, such exciting news--tell me more, oh please do! "
"Remember Marjorie Sherk?" she asked. "Well, you know she was very musically inclined, and I
heard that last month she organized a jazz band in Kansas City, Nebraska. Radley Nutting plays the
violin and Linda Taylor, now married, plays sax."
"Brenda, you'll never guess who I ran into last time I was in Singapore- -Ann Hathaway and Kathy
Morin. Their patriotism toward the United States was so great, they decided to become spies for the
FBI, and last week the two received prizes from the United States government for their capture of Betty
Brooks, who was caught red-handed stealing bubble gum from the government gum supply in Washington.
Incidentally, Ann and Kathy 's prizes were one-way tickets to Czechoslovakia."
We went on for hours, talking about old Burgy High and the things we used to do. All good things
have to end so about 4:30, we parted- -she with her poodle and I with my two suitcases. "Goodby,
Brenda, and keep the coffee pouring! "
I went directly to my hotel, where Damon had left a message that the best-looking girl in Havana
was going to be ready at 8, and I was to pick her up at her home. I did so and met Damon with his girl
at the Boom Boom Room, a cozy little club in downtown Havana. Damon and I got so involved in remi-
niscing that we forgot about the girls.
"Say, Damon, when they elected Cecil Thomas President last year, I never guessed he would take
over the way he did."
"I know it. The country hasn't been the same since. Cecil is constantly dashing from one city to the
next, making sure things are in tip top shape. Of course, you knew Bruce Dufresne is an American astro-
naut now. That's right, he's on the moon at present. All they have to do now is get him back. I heard,
however, that they are soon sending up America's first lady astronaut, Sue Fowler, to join Bruce and
keep him company."
"I ran into Doctor Donald Williston a short while ago. He told me he was searching the world over
for a new X-ray technician, as good as the one he had had. Donald, you know, is a brain surgeon, and
Beverly Morin, bless her, .used to be his own personal X-ray technician; but she got so fed up with his
corny jokes one day that she left him. She went back to Massachusetts and married her high school
"I hear Bonnie Taylor is trying for the job."
That moment, there was a roll of drums and a fanfare, and the floor show began. And I'll be darned
if I didn't see two old friends on that stage. What a routine! I'd heard of brassy night club shows, but this
was ridiculous. I didn't know these girls had any show business in their blood. Diane Pollen and Peggy
Lockwood--a couple of chorus girls- -and pretty good ones at that. I talked with them after the show.
Diane I found out was hiding in an apartment in a Havana suburb, and Peggy was married. We all sat •
"Girls, did you know that Paul Healy has accepted the appointment as chief nuclear physicist for the
United States? I knew someday Paul would have an important job like that. Oh yea, and remember Bob
Haskell? Well, today he is one of the richest men in Europe with a million dollar chain of automobile
garages stretching throughout the continent. Oh, and remember your old buddy Mike Dymerski? (How
could anybody forget?) After graduation from college, he bought a sheep ranch down in New Zealand.
His ranch, I hear, is growning by leaps and bounds. Last month sometime, I received a letter from Andy
Burr. He was on his way down to New Zealand and the ranch, looking for a job, shearing Mike's sheep.
It's wonderful country down there you know."
Then Peggy, bless her, came up with this, "I suppose you know that Philip Merritt and Patty Pavelc-
syk opened an art school in Hong Kong a few years ago. They're teaching the Chinese contemporary
American art and making quite a haul for themselves."
"You know, we've talked about practically everyone tonight. Let's see, who else was there back in
the Class of '62. How about Dicky Graves?" Damon asked.
"Oh! " shouted Diane, "hadn't you heard about Dicky? He owns the famous Richard Graves All
American Animal Circus. He's gotten together some of the world's fiercest animals. For his twenty-
first birthday Dickie's father gave him a jaguar, and since then the boy has devoted his life to training
them. I hear it's a great circus."
"And what about that big Tommy Kuschka?"
"That's easy," shouted Peggy. "He's the famous owner of Kuschka 's Chicks Incorporated. Tommy
has a nation-wide chicken business now and employs Dickie Thomas as his chief chicken feeder. Dickie
always liked cute little chicks anyway. Tommy recently received a prize as all American chicken
"Oh, and did you hear about Joanne Brooks? She married back in '62 and has eleven or thirteen
darling kids now, keeping up with the Donovan tradition. Yes, the two of them are happy."
Boy, that was some evening we had, but all good things have to end. We broke up at three or four
that morning. Little did I know that tomorrow was going to be a day the whole world would never forget.
I awoke about eleven o'clock that morning, dressed and ate a light breakfast. I had an appointment
at noon, and for this I couldn't be late. I took a cab to the meeting place. It was a dark, old building- -
very run down. I entered and ascended the rickety stairs, the first floor, second, and third. It was on
this floor where the meeting was to take place. I was nervous, for I was a new member of the organi-
zation and knew none of the others. I saw the door with 314 on it. This was the room.
You see, it was in this room that a Cuban revolution was being planned. I was to report here today,
with confidential information from the United States. I was a spy.
You've probably thought it funny that so many from our old class were in Havana at this time. Well,
you see, we were all in the plan to overthrow the wicked Cuban dictator, Ricky Graves. We hated to do
it, but we all felt it necessary for world peace.
I entered Room 314. There they were, seated at a round table.
Let me explain further. It seems five years ago Suzanne Arel and Gail Mougin got together and
formed the Arel and Mougin Revolution Association. They travel the world over conspiring revolutions
to overthrow mean dictators, and this year they're working on Premier Graves of Cuba.
Yes, all of them were there--and now so was I. Suzanne looked up and smirked, "You're late, Com-

Williamsburg High School organized a Student Council four years ago. The constitution is organized to
"promote better understanding between the faculty and the students, to develop interest in all school
activities, and to encourage the students to abide by the rules of the school. "Representation of the Student
Council has been established as five representatives from the senior class, four juniors, three sophomores,
two freshmen, and one each from the seventh and eighth grades, with each homeroom represented. The
Council meets every Friday to discuss problems and activities, and under its new president, Andy Burr,
is currently attempting to take action on problems concerning the welfare of the entire student body.
This year the Council organized a student guide system to ease and correct congestion in school traffic.
It also appropriated funds for the purchase of magazines for the school library. Council members are
now endeavoring to establish a school newspaper and handbook for student use.

The Williamsburg High School debating team was inexperienced when it started the season in the fall.
After hours of practice and hard work under the guidance of Mr. Bernard McColgan, it gradually im-
proved so that its final record in the Connecticut Valley League was eleven wins and nine losses, which
gave it fourth place.
Avis Goodhue, Anne Warren, Michael Dymerski, Deborah Feiker, Cecil Thomas, Jerome Sherk, and
Donald Williston were on the affirmative team; and Kathy Moran, Alicia DeNood, Robin Frost, and
Nicholas Dostie upheld the negative side of the question: RESOLVED, that the Federal government
should equalize educational opportunity by means of grants to the states for public elementary and
Williamsburg High School, Southwick High School, Holyoke High School, and South Hadley High
School hosted the four tournaments of the Connecticut Valley League. Besides league debating, the
team also went to several practice debates at Hopkins Academy, Holyoke High School and a clinic at
Amherst College. At the end of the season the team entered a speech tournament at the University of
Massachusetts. Deborah Feiker placed as a semi -finalist for her dramatic interpretation of John Brown's
Last Speech. Donald Williston also was a semi -finalist in his class, radio newscasting. Anne Warren,
Avis Goodhue, Katherine Moran, and Alicia DeNood entered as a debate team and were tied for third
place in the preliminaries. The last tournament was at Columbia University.
Avis Goodhue, Anne Warren, Katherine Moran, Alicia DeNood, and Robin Frost enjoyed the weekend in
New York. They won four out of six debates, a very admirable record. Now that the team is experienced,
they are looking forward to an even better record next year.

This year a student guide system was initiated at Williamsburg High School by the Student Council.
Under this system nine boys from the Junior and Senior Classes were selected by the Council with
approval of the faculty. The purposes of this action were to relieve congestion in the halls, to aid the
incoming Freshman Class, and to aid the teachers in the supervision of student traffic. Everyone is
pleased with the results of the student guide system, and it is planned to expand the duties and functions
of this organization.

Our girls' basketball team had another undefeated season with fifteen straight wins and no losses. We
were very proud in maintaining this record for two consecutive years. The junior varsity team also en-
joyed an undefeated season for the second consecutive year, winning seven games and losing none.
Through graduation, we will lose seven first team members: Captain Betty Brooks, Brenda Donovan,
Susan Fowler, Kathy Bartlett, Joanne Brooks, Ann Hathaway, and Suzanne Arel. These team members
would like to thank Mrs. Kmit for the time and effort she has spent throughout their basketball years.
The team members who are leaving would also like to wish next year's team an excellent season.

The cross country team, missing some of its star runners of the past, finally had its three year winning
streak smashed. The harriers lost twice to a much improved Minnechaug team and twice to the fast
Amherst squad, but they pulled out two victories over Arms Academy, a newcomer to the schedule.
Coach David Grills' team was paced by Captain Mickey Donovan, who set a new course record of
12:06, breading the record set in 1959 by Dan Dunlevy.
Extending Donovan in every meet were Buddy Haskell, a surprising sophomore, who shows much promise,
and Jim Gromelski, a junior who participated in cross country for the first time.
Seniors who contributed geatly to the team were three -year veterans, Andy Burr, Damon Cheverette and
Much will be expected next year of Alex Maslowski, who placed three times, Carl Eldred, Royl Scho-
onover, Don Hutchins, Dale Howes, and Dan Walsh, all of whom will be attempting to bring a winning
season to the 1962 cross country team.

The 1962 Basketball Banquet was a gay, festive affair held in the Anne T. Dunphy Cafeteria on March
24, 1962. After a delicious dinner served by the Citizens Committee, Mr. Reddington, the master of
ceremonies, opened the program by giving thanks to everyone who made the banquet possible. He then
gave a fine speech praising the girls' and boys' teams and the cheerleaders for their fine performance
throughout the basketball season.
Mr. Grills complimented the basketball teams for their good records this year. Don Hutchins, captain
of the Junior Varsity Team, then presented Mr. Grills with a rolling pin on which were engraved the
year of the basketball season and the name of each Junior Varsity player.
Mrs. Kmit thanked the cheerleaders and then spoke of the excellent record of the girls' basketball
team. She awarded the players and cheerleaders with "tote bags," while the seniors of the team re-
ceived trophies. Betty Brooks, captain of the girls' team presented Mrs. Kmit with a cuckoo clock and
a white sweater. As a parting token, Mike Dymerski of the boys' team gave each of the girl basketball
players a box of "candy" cigarettes.
The guest speaker for the evening was Mr. Hy Myers. He spoke in recognition of the basketball players
and cheerleaders and gave a very interesting and educational talk on the meaning of basketball.
Mr. Tonet reviewed the highlights of the season and complimented the girls' basketball team and the
cheerleaders for their performance during the year. Mr. Tonet presented trophies to the senior members
of the Varsity and silver cuff links to the lower classmen. In conclusion Rick Graves, captain of the boys'
team, gave Mr. Tonet two engraved pewter beer mugs in appreciation for his time, effort, and assis-
The Basketball Banquet concluded a very successful basketball season, and the pleasures of the banquet
will long remain in the hearts of the participants.

The Williamsburg High School basketball team completed the third most successful season in its history
this year with a sparkling 19-3 record. The team put in many long hours of practice and was repaid by
sharing the Franklin League title with Hardwick and by securing third place in the Tri -State Small
Schools Tournament at Turners Falls.
The team was led in scoring by Roy Foster and Ricky Graves with Dick Thomas and Mike Dymerski
doing the bulk of the work on the backboards. Jim Hickey and Robert Hutchins shared the backcourt
duties, both doing a fine job.
Ricky Graves was selected for the Franklin League All -star team, and honorable mention was earned
by Roy Foster.
Although the 1961-62 team will lose four seniors by graduation, next year's team will have benefited
by the experience gained by the reserves during the season.
